It's on me...

Its your first date, you have gone for drinks, and dinner. Conversation has been going well, no awkward pauses, lots of laughs. It comes to the end of the meal and the server brings the cheque....what do you do?

What is first date etiquette? Do you expect the guy to pay? Should us girls "offer" to pay but really make no real effort to? or do you go dutch and split the meal?

What do you do...we live in a time where girls are equals, however we still like to be treated nice by our question of the day is, first date who pays?

The New Blind Date

How do you meet people now?

Where do you meet people now?

We may not be meeting for coffee wearing a blue shirt so the person recognizes us, but rather were meeting someone new we recognize from the pics we have exchanged. I think once we get to a certain age, the bar sceene is fun but for meeting people just doesn't happen. People now are taking charge, and making the decision that they want to get more serious and see whats out there.
Meeting people online has become more common, and easier in a way to meet people. Posting a profile of who you are and what you want...and seeing others who have posted the same. People are meeting online, msging, talking on the phone, meeting in person for coffee or drinks, which im calling the new version of the blind date!

So if your out there wondering if you should take the new blind date plunge...

....This single girl says why not!?

Is it just a number?

We all know that girls mature faster then boys. You can even see on the playground when the little grade 2 girls are already crushing on the older grade 4 boys. When we are in our 20's girls and guys I have found have different outlooks on life and relationships.

For instance, I personally have dated younger then my self. I usually do have the personal outlook that age doesn't matter but apparently in the end it did. We were in two different places in our lives, maturity levels were uneven ....I heard it all.

So I ask you this....does age matter? When we are older and I am 34 and he's 32 I don't think so, but right now at 24 I'm beginning to think it does....

Can I have your PIN?

So just recently, I added someone new to my bbm friends list, and during our bbm new "friend" commented on how we exchanged PIN's before we did numbers. That really made me stop and think

Getting to know someone doesn't start now with phone calls, but rather through wall posts, private msgs, texts, and bbm. Now a days a phone call doesn't happen until, a great amount of msging has transpired.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm as addicted to my phone and msging as the rest of you girls, but call me old fashion when I say I miss the good old phone call, when a boy wants to chat and a date is planned

So next time someone asks for your PIN....why not try the line..." Here's my number, call me and we'll see..."

Good on Paper....

What's on your list?

Every girl out there has a list of the guy she wants to meet. Many criteria make these lists such as, height, age, rich, job, look, and so on.....Have you met that guy who has all of your requirements?

Or do girls, settle for someone who has some traits on the list and try to create the qualities in their man that they may seem to be lacking.

Well, I will tell you this, I haven't found my list guy yet, I don't know what I am doing wrong.....or is it wrong to have a list?
